It was hot, but nice trail with lots of trees and wide trail.  Missed the YL on the way up, but found it on the way back.  You'll miss the little "hill of life" if you stay on the left (crosses the creek at the YL).  There was a trail map on the right at the YL also. 

One thing, they are trying to mark the trail with rocks, but you don't know that until you pass a mess of rocks, so pick up a couple BEFORE you get to the picknic table and sign about marking the trail.

Lots of dogs that were well behaved and they found a pool of water (standing) up the top of the loop.
